Welcome to my Blog!


The weekend before last was Halloween! I had so much fun. I was dressed as a farmer/cowgirl/scarecrow, and I went with Katie, who dressed up as a strip of bacon. We liked to tell people that we were indeed a pair, I the farmer and she the slaughter.

We went around the school area neighborhood, which has a ton of houses in it. I was over the moon, because I got eight whole pounds of candy this year, more than I had ever gotten in my previous small town.

This year’s trick-or-treating also brought some nostalgia. However much fun Halloween in Texas is, I think I will always miss the little neighborhood parties, where it was a tradition to all go trick or treating together.

This is actually also the first year we’ve ever had to actually give out candy, believe it or not. The only other places I’ve lived were 1.) A house at the end of a cul-de-sac that no one ever trick or treated at, and 2.) A house with a driveway that gave you a workout just walking up it. It was so cute to see little kids in their costumes racing up our driveway to get candy!

What were you for Halloween? What’s your favorite candy?


Trick or Treat?

Hey everybody! It’s that time of year again… sweaters, colorful leaves, hot cocoa, pumpkin flavored everything, and best of all… HALLOWEEN! I’m still not totally sure, but I think I want to be a scarecrow this year. Last year, I was Katniss Everdeen, (I was going through an archery phase) so I decided to dye my hair brown for fun. It turned out slightly red, but I was happy with the results. Might do it again this year! My best friend and always dressed up as the same thing. In past years we have been Katniss, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Vampires, (x2) and more! I’m gonna miss that little neighborhood party. My favorite part of Halloween is always the time right before you go trick or treating, because while we are getting ready, (which is actually a ton of fun) we always have this old Halloween music CD playing in the background. Also, we’re feasting on roasted pumpkin seeds, one of my favorite fall snacks. What’s your favorite part of Halloween? What will you be this year?
